I understand that it’s a lot of hard work developers need to do in order to make it so we can edit posts, there’s a lot more involved than just editing a post. So I wanted to suggest something I saw on mastodon that might work, for now at least, until editing posts becomes available.
We already can delete posts without issue, can we have a button that just says, “Delete and Repost” which deletes the original post, and then opens up the ‘new post’ box with your previous post’s contents already put into it? If you cancel, then the original post is just deleted and no new post is created, but if you so choose, you can edit your initial post here and make the post again. It’s not the ‘edit’ feature, but it seems simple enough to not require a TON of coding to get done. What do you guys think?
